I have a Jupyter notebook deployed as a web app using Voilà. This notebook embeds approx. 60 ipywigets and 2 bokeh plots. Everything works fine under jupyterlab but I’m facing a page rendering problem when the app is deployed with voilà.
The symptom is the following: 1. we open a browser passing our app URL from command line. 2. we observe a partial rendering of the web page (only the markdown cells are properly rendered). 3. the dashboard is finally rendred after a long delay (30s to one minute) or never rendered. In the latter case, the browser’s console “sometimes” says : “Failed to fetch ipywidgets through the “jupyter.widget.control” comm channel, fallback to fetching individual model state. Reason: Control comm did not respond in time”. 5. forcing the refresh of the page usally fixes the problem (a few attempts might be necessary).
Please note that I’m using pre-heated kernels on voilà side.
Here is the conda env. I’m using:
jupyter_bokeh 3.0.5 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge jupyter_client 7.0.6 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge jupyter_core 5.1.3 py38h578d9bd_0 conda-forge jupyter_server 1.23.4 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge jupyterlab 3.5.2 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge jupyterlab_pygments 0.2.2 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge jupyterlab_server 2.18.0 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge jupyterlab_widgets 3.0.5 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge ipykernel 5.5.5 py38hd0cf306_0 conda-forge ipython 8.8.0 pyh41d4057_0 conda-forge ipython_genutils 0.2.0 py_1 conda-forge ipywidgets 8.0.4 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge voila 0.4.0 pyhd8ed1ab_0 conda-forge
Any tip that could help me to locate the problem would be welcome.
(I tried to upload an screenshot to give you an idea of what the dashboard looks like but I got a systematic error)
